Evie commenced her pupillage in October 2023, and is supervised by David Harounoff.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Evie managed Intervene Project, a charity providing free legal assistance to prisoners facing abuse and neglect, who had been stripped of access to legal aid. She advocated in the County Court, negotiated settlements, and secured many positive outcomes for clients, including improved healthcare and nutrition; prison transfers; investigations into abuse; improved cell conditions; educational opportunities; employment opportunities; contact with loved ones; adjudication dismissals; formal apologies; and substantial sums of compensation. Evie managed a caseload of over 200 clients and trained over 40 volunteer caseworkers. Evie wrote articles for legal publications and featured on podcasts, raising awareness of the prevalence of abuse and human rights breaches in prisons. Under her management, the charity was shortlisted for the LexisNexis Pro Bono Legal Award.

Evie was also employed by The University of Law, delivering Bar talks and advocacy workshops to universities across the country. In her role, Evie mentored aspiring barristers and was a regular Future Pupil’s Podcast guest.

Evie read Law at UCL, and received an academic prize. She was awarded Sports Colours for rugby.
